TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
<< Well, resumes can be faked too... but that is why the interview
_should_ ask about the contents, what they mean, how some of the
projects/contracts went, etc. Unless I'm still standing out in left
field, that is.>>
Indeed they can. That's why I check references and ask specific questions
about projects and accomplishments.
I also like to give a short writing test. I want to see what the person can
do, rather than relying on polished samples that may or may not reflect the
candidate's abilities. I also pay attention to how the TW approaches the
interview and the questions that are asked.
